Everyone knows this shoe—it’s the Chuck Taylor All-Star, a timeless sneaker whose place in fashion will probably never, ever die. It may very well be the most famous sneaker on the planet (sorry Jordans). While the design of their shoes doesn’t require much adjustment, Converse is showing that it’s able to cater to more earth-friendly needs by adjusting its process. The Renew Denim Collection - the second of the sneaker brand’s three-part Renew release - which features the iconic shoe as well as the Chuck 70 High and Chuck 70 Low are all repurposed from recycled jeans once found in landfills as part of the footwear brand’s commitment to eco-conscious production. So while you’ll be looking good, the earth will be feeling just a bit better about it as well, too. If you’d like to get your hands on a pair, these will be available on their website and select Converse retailers globally.
